Turkey Salad on Wheat Recipe

Inspired by the turkey salad at a local deli, I developed this version to suit my family's tastes. You can serve it on whole-grain bread for a filling meal or on croissants for an elegant luncheon. Precooked bacon and leftover turkey make it a snap to fix.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 15 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 2 cups chopped romaine
  • 1-1/4 cups diced cooked turkey
  • 1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 6 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
  • 1/3 cup frozen peas, thawed
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 12 slices whole wheat bread


  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Add mayonnaise and pepper; toss to coat. Spread on six slices of bread; top with remaining bread. Yield: 6 servings.
